Blogrolling: bogroll?

Just a quickie: does anybody actually use the blogrolling links over there? —–>

The reason for the question is that the blogrolling code seriously slows down page load times, and I’m starting to think it’d make more sense to zap it and just link to things from the appropriate blog post. Would that be a bad thing?

Update: I’ve removed the links, which means this post makes even less sense than it originally did.
